tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  September 17, 2015 6:00pm-7:01pm PDT

6:00 pm
good evening. 9:00 p.m. here, it happened right after he took a victory lap for cnn's debate. >> we had a little thing called a debate at the regan library, and it was, it was sort of an amazing thing. we had an incredible time. >> we love you trump! >> thank you. thank you. [ applause ] >> that was some evening. i got such great remarks. look at this. we just wrote this down. "time magazine" did votes who won last night. "time magazine." 114,000 votes as of 6:00 p.m., trump 56. [ cheers ] >> carly fiorina 19, rubio seven, ben carson four, the rest not doing too good.
6:01 pm
then drudge, we love drudge. we love drudge. donald trump 51%. we had a total of 668,000 votes cast. trump 668,000 think of it, 51%, second fiorina muchless like much. then rubio, then cruz, then -- i'm not going to mention the next name because i don't like him very much. then "news max" way up ahead. you like "news max," chris ready, i like it, too. donald trump first place by a lot. "the street," "the street." donald trump 52%. that's a lot. you know, it's not against two people. it's against donald trump 5 2% first place and then slate and
6:02 pm
that's also donald trump. so we had a great time. >> from there he opened the floor to questions from the audience and this is the first question he got. >> this man, i like this guy. >> amen, okay, we have a problem in this country, it's called muslims. we me our current president is one. you know he's not even an american. >> we need this question -- this first question. [ laughter ] >> anyway, we have training camps growing where they want to kill us. >> uh-huh. >> that's my question. when can we get rid of them? >> we'll look at a lot of different things and a lot of people are saying that and a lot of people are saying bad things are happening out there. we'll be looking at that and plenty of other things. >> virtually the same thing happened to john mccann during the 2008 campaign. >> i can't trust obama. i have read about him, and he's not -- he's a -- he's an arab.
6:03 pm
he is not -- >> no, ma'am. >> no? >> no, ma'am. no, ma'am. he's a descent family-man citizen that i just happen to have disappoigreements with on mental issues. >> our political analysts will weigh in. sarah murray joins us. we heard the question about the guy who said we have a problem in this country referring to muslims, not muslim radicals will you muslims. how did the crowd react? >> it was interesting because donald trump didn't react. trump looked taken aback. the premise of it, she moved on and noviceble reaction from the crowd and push back. we tried to catch up with donald trump of the event to ask him to elaborate and ask if he really agreed with the premise of that question and did not answer cnn's questions but will be back
6:04 pm
on the campaign trail tomorrow and i cannot imagine this is the last time he'll be asked to expand on what he thought of the question and whether he agrees with the premise. >> yeah, i would be very surprising if he doesn't come out quickly on twitter or something and say look, you know, i think american muslims are, you know, great. the problem is radical. what else does the voters want to know from trump tonight? >> the interesting thing is donald trump don't do events like this often where he fields questions from regular voters. we see a lot of flashing rallies. tonight pea tonight they pressed on issues how to handle social security and you got a much better sense of the issues donald trump is comfortable with. he was clearly in the element talking about immigration, trade, not so much when people ask about some of the more unique things they ask about in new hampshire like agricultural things or for instance about speeding up the process in
6:05 pm
family court. so you really got a sense where donald trump practiced on certain issues and sort of taken off guard and wasn't quite sure how to field those questions. >> sarah murray, thank you. coming up reaction from kevin madden and also with us, old friend and colleague paul stenhouser political director and anchor. paul, let me start with you. you were there at the trump event tonight. this question about muslims, again, from your vantage point, what was the crowd's reaction? >> you know, sarah said i think since donald trump didn't react, it was pretty quiet in the room at the time and he glossed over it and moved on. he wanted to move quickly to the next question so the crowd didn't have a chance to react. >> what do you make of trump's response to the question of muslims because, i mean, not to put too fine a point on it, some may claim this is an over exaggeration and trump was trying to be sarcastic and say
6:06 pm
look, we need this and try to move on from it. should he have actually though confronted the premise? >> oh, anderson, i think what -- yeah, i think that kind of confrontation probably would have served him well. donald trump is not a polished politician in that sense. i think a lot of the energy that he has and a lot of his crowds he doesn't necessarily try to confront that or stop that but instead engage with it. one of the important things from last night's debate is that we have a whole host of candidates that are really skilled, really good on policy, are focused on the issues. those are the type of crowds that they want to engage and right now this is an opportunity for all those other candidates to draw a contrast with donald trump in a way that helps consolidate some support among a larger part of the electric inside the republican party that
6:07 pm
really wants to see somebody who is going to be able to bring people together in november. >> and paul -- >> in 2016. >> how big a crowd was this? donald trump likes to talk about the size of his crowds a lot and what were the issues important to them? >> biggest crowd yet for donald trump here in new hampshire. he had crowds about 2,000 before. fire marshals telling me they had 3,000. for new hampshire that's large. we won't get 15 to 20,000 people rallies you've seen trump and bernie sanders have elsewhere. for new hampshire, that's sizable. his crowds anderson are bigger throughout the summer into the fall and energetic. at first, people were showing up to see trump more of a spectacle to see if he was real. now these are very, very strong supporters of donald trump. more maybe working class, blue collar than white collar but truly are believers, anderson.
6:08 pm
>> paul, great to have you. coming up next, how an influential group saw the debate undecided voters in iowa tell us which candidates impressed them most and whether anything they heard last night won them over. which means you can watch movies while you're on the move. sitcoms, while you sit on those. and even fargo, in fargo! binge, while you lose weight! and enjoy a good cliffhanger while you hang from a... why am i yelling? the revolution will not only be televised. the revolution will be mobilized. introducing the all in one plan. only from directv and at&t.

6:12 pm
small number of eyes and ears. the first contest in iowa where politics is done neighbor to neighbor one on one just a few thousand viewers last night could be pivotal, which is why randi kaye spent debate night talking to a group of what whwha iowa people. >> reporter: 22 republicans hoping the cnn debate would help them choose a candidate. is there anyone here who trump scored points with tonight? no? [ laughter ] >> reporter: for our focus group, donald trump was not at the top of their list. >> women across the country are very unpleased about the laundry list of horrible comments he's made about women. >> i'm really concerned about him being the president that he would maybe start a war with a nuclear bomb or something like that. >> reporter: some in our group thought he should have played
6:13 pm
nice when jeb bush presed him about bringing it into the conversation. in fact, trump didn't score when this group was asked who did the best job during the debate. carly fiorina rated highest with 22 of our 32 voters in her corner. >> there is a lot of testosterone in that stage and she is holding her own. >> she is and you have to give her credit and over the last six months, she's come into her skpoen she isn't afraid of anybody or anything. >> i was surprised by her knowledge of the facts, the size of certain areas of military and her heart just comes off as genuine, you know, i think this is one place you can combine toughness and softness of a woman in one package. i was impressed tonight. >> reporter: this moment when fiorina pushed to define planned parenthood struck the group. >> if we will not stand up and force president obama to veto
6:14 pm
this bill, shame on us. >> it really hit me as a woman that we're even discussing this, this is even a political issue. >> reporter: is it important to you to have a woman in the white house? >> i don't really care. man parts, girl apartmeparts, i care. >> reporter: this group is concerned about jobs and the economy and think an outsider can deliver. >> traditional candidates represent the establishment of the republican party and it's failed. failed us and failed americans. >> reporter: which may be why most of our group was turned off by jeb bush even though they thought he showed more spark. >> i like him. i really do but three bushes, i'm not sure and i think he's probably a little more liberal than george and his father. >> reporter: one establishment candidate that did breakthrough was the governor from new jersey. >> you're both successful people. congratulations. you know who is not successful,
6:15 pm
the middle close getting plowed over. >> who i wrote off is chris christie and i'm interested in what he's saying. i'm definitely going to be paying more attention there. he's probably listed out more specifics tonight than most of the others. >> reporter: some others weren't as impressed. >> crist christie is great for jersey, keep him there. >> randi, did anyone decide on a candidate after they watched the debate or still undecided? >> reporter: after all three hours, anderson, not a single voter said they can choose a candidate just yet. they narrowed it down, some of them to four or five but need to hear more specifics. they are, though, as you heard in the piece learning towards an outsider, although one woman in the group said hey to her fellow republicans, remember obama was once an outsider and we don't like how things turned out. all of them, anderson, think the country is moving in the wrong direction. one guy says the federal government are like living in
6:16 pm
the land of oz. completely out of touch. here is one final thought, anderson. when i meet these groups and go around the country talking to voters, i ask if donald trump, if he is the nominee, would you vote for him, could you vote for him? every time they have said yes. in this group, anderson, they said no. they said they would write in a candidate of their choosing and not support the republican nominee, they would pick their own candidate. >> appreciate you doing that. joining us amanda carpenter and van jones. so we just saw van trump was not at the top of the list for these voters. do you think we're going to actually see some of his support to go. maybe they are seeing jinx in the armor but as you heard, trump hit the town hall tonight to thing online polls based on probably clicks that he according to supporters won the
6:17 pm
debate. >> so internet trolls like trump, congratulations but the actually polling data has not come in. we have to wait and see. >> there is more than internet trolls, let's be fair. >> i'm giving him a little bit of a hard time. he's so proud of the numbers i couldn't help but take a poke at numbers. sure, listen, is he wildly popular? sure. are there are a lot people that didn't watch the debate and like him so much, true. here is what you have to look at. half of the republican voters are looking for somebody whose not an establishment candidate and i think carly fiorina put herself in a position as you start maybe getting trump fatigue or second glances for her to start picking up from him but much more importantly because ben carson didn't shine at all, she may pick up support from him. it will take a couple days to digest in vote and digest this entire debate we just went through but i think that we may
6:18 pm
be finally getting towards a ceiling for donald trump. >> amanda, do you think that's the case for donald trump and dr. carson? >> yeah, i like the way that van put it about trump pa fatigue perhaps setting in. he did not come away looking good because he couldn't rise from the occasion. the first chance he had to talk about something in the early minutes of the debate i thought was notable. he was asked a question and oddly went out of his way to attack rand paul. seemingly out of nowhere where rand paul isn't near to him in the polls and spoke to his attitude to the debate where he is just going to continue to attack other people and to heck with the economy or anything besides immigration. i think at this point, trump supporters aren't going to abandon him. carson supporters won't abandon him yet but their support is softening and may be ready to look for an alternative and that's something a candidate like ted cruz is counting on. >> it is very, very telling.
6:19 pm
these are iowa undecided voters. you got some people that may have locked themselves into trump. that the fine. now where is he going to grow? if those are iowa voters and they uniformly said not only were they not for trump, they would write in their best friend or something, that's not a good sign. that's one focus group but not a good sign about his ability to grow when you have a carly that can get the anti establishment vote and there are establishment people now saying good things about carly fiorina. >> amanda, we have seen what happened happened carly fiorina when she ran in the senate. people attacked her for her business record. donald trump attacked her on her business record and barbara boxer talked able the number of employees fired under her reign at hewlett packard and the money she walked away from. the commercial writes itself for the democrats. >> listen, carly certainly had the breakout performance last
6:20 pm
night between her answers answering donald trump and the planned parenthood answer. put that aside. we're starting to see the scrutiny set in and she's certainly has some romney vulnerabilities that i know the democrats are very excited about and that donald trump would be sure t explode and that's why i think the focus group was impressed with chris christie because while they were batting each other about whether they did bankruptcy or how much money he made, he took that as an opportunity to put the focus on the economy and there was talk about foreign policy and personality in last night's debate but because of that, not a lot of talk about the cone ec. >> amanda, good to have you on tonight, van jones, as well. jeb bush takes his rally on and i'll speak with the bush campaign's communications director next.

narrator: the california teachers association. educators who know quality public schools make a better california for all of us. jeb bush's campaign is wasting no time promoting a memorable moment from last night's debate after donald trump called george w. bush's
6:25 pm
administration a disaster, jeb bush said there is one thing i'll tell you about my brother, he kept us safe. big applause and today the campaign is promoting that. bush spoke at a rally in vegas just a short time ago taking a jab at trump saying on "meet the pr press" he gets foreign policy from watching tv shows. >> i won't get my foreign policy based on watching the shows or say don't worry about it, i'll figure it out later. you need a president with a steady hand because this is a dangerous world and you need a president that will understand what the world looks like and love this country and understand the power. not to be the world's policeman, it's to lead the world a. country like ours needs to lead the world to take care of the persecuted christians in the middle east. >> joining me is tim miller, communications director for the bush campaign. thanks for being with us. >> thanks, anderson. >> where do you see your candidate getting into double
6:26 pm
digits? does he need to do and do you think last night was perhaps the first signs of some sort of weakness of donald trump as some observers said last night though certainly supporters said he did great. >> well, i think for sure it was a sign of weakness for donald trump. i thought jeb had a great night and the moment you mentioned i thought was the moment of debate where he looked at donald trump and he said you can dispararidge my brother if you want but he kept us safe. jeb laid out a plan to defeat is six. while donald trump thought hillary clinton would be a good negotiator with iran, jeb bush will make sure america is the leader in the world again and will resonate with primary voters. when he combines that with conservative record with reform in florida, we feel good that that's going to resonate with voters are. >> but resinating is one thing but how do you actually start to
6:27 pm
move up in the polls? that's ultimately about getting people who are going to come up and caucus for jeb bush and be enthusiastic and right now, you know, the enthusiasm seems to be for trump or carson. do you see it as a long game, you're just kind of hoping that kind of donald trump starts to fate? >> yeah, i think both, anderson, for starters, we're putting together the best organization in all of the early states in iowa, new hampshire for sure and nevada where governor bush was today. you know, we've got the support of all the major elected leaders and county official and every county. you know, this is a state by state race, and we just began advertising last week, this is the second debate, voters think they know a lot about jeb but don't know about his conservative record of balancing budgets, cutting taxes, reforming education in florida. once we build our organization and really start telling the jeb story, we feel very good about
6:28 pm
the position we're in and i wouldn't -- >> you really -- >> i wouldn't trade places with anybody right now. >> you would not trade places with anybody? >> who would you trade places with? >> donald trump is ticking time bomb. there is no way somebody who thought hillary clinton was going to negotiate, be a good negotiator with iran once the biggest tax increase, supported partial birth abortion, no way that person will be the nominee. >> you can't honestly say you're happy with the possession, you can't say you're happy your candidate is in single digits in the polls after all the name recognition he has and all the runup to this. >> of course. like i said, people think they know jeb but don't know about his record. >> you're happy he's in single digits? >> what i'm saying is that i'm happy about the position looking at this state by state race. you have to winnerly sta ll lea. i feel like jeb is very well positioned to go into those early states and win. we're going to continue to grow the vote share.
6:29 pm
we began advertising last week. if you look at the online prediction market, the odds on favorite. we feel good where we're at. >> got a big applause when he defended his brother saying his brother kept the country safe. is that something we're going to be hearing more of from jeb bush linking himself to his brother? >> well, one thing you're definitely going to hear more of from jeb is laying out a plan for defeating isis and no matter what you say about his brother, nobody doubts his commitment and resolve to taking on terrorists and we don't have a president doing that and hillary clinton was side by side with him and they have no strategy to defeat isis. six weeks ago in the regan library, jeb bush laid out the most detailed plan to take on isis. we feel like that's a winning message -- >> do you think it comes with risk, though, linking himself to george w. bush?
6:30 pm
>> i think not having a strategy to take on isis would be a bigger risk, anderson. >> okay. >> and we feel good about that strategy and some resinates with republican primary voters. contrast from hillary clinton and voters headache sure america is a leader in the world. >> anderson good to be with you. >> a person being slammed for their thoughts on vaccines and talked about medical facts and tonight a cnn exclusive, a live interview from the 2016 campaign trail. this bale of hay cannot be controlled. when a wildfire raged through elkhorn ranch, the sudden loss of pasture became a serious problem for a family business. faced with horses that needed feeding and a texas drought that sent hay prices soaring, the owners had to act fast.

6:34 pm
many medical professionals are blasting donald trump for what he said last night about autism and vaccines. the two mds that shared the stage with trump and carson and rand paul are criticized for their response to his remarks and here is some of what was said. >> i only say it's not, i'm in favor of vaccines, do them over
6:35 pm
a longer period of time, same amount. >> thank you. >> just in little sections. >> dr. carson -- >> and i think you're going to see a big impact on autism. >> dr. carson, i think you just heard his medical intake. >> he's an okay doctor. the fact of the matter is, we have extremely well-documented but it is true we are probably giving way too many in a time and pediatricians are recognizing that and cutting down on the number and proximity in which those are done. >> that's all i'm saying, jake. >> i'm all for vaccines but also for freedom. i'm also a little concerned how they are bunched up. my kids had all vaccines and if
6:36 pm
the science doesn't say bunching them up is a problem, i ought to have the right to spread them out. >> donald trump has a history of linking vaccines to autism h.e told an emotional story about an employee and sited a 17-year-old story debunked and found to be fraud. the british doctor that did the research lost his medical license. dr. sanjay gupta joins us. >> you heard trump, paul say they are in favor of vaccines but should be done over a longer period of time. is there any merit to spreading them out? >> no. there is really no merit and i say no and then pause because i don't want anybody to think there is strings attached to that. it's just no. there is no merit to it and in fact, this are possibly consequences to it. the whole point of vaccines is to prevent people from getting illnesses. if you wait longer to give the vaccines, the children are potentially exposed or
6:37 pm
vulnerable for longer and problematic every night for homes that have several small children in the house. some of the children may be vaccinated, some have been delayed now getting their vaccinations. they could potentially get sick when they didn't have to. the american pediatrics released a statement on this just after the debate last night to specifically talk about that and what they said was that there is no alternative immunization schedule delaying vaccines, on means a child is at risk for disease for a longer period of time. >> trump said he wants vaccines to be administered in smaller doses. any value to that? >> there isn't. there is not. this is a really important point. people say look, seems likist so much. too many vaccines that you're giving people and i think he linked it to what you give to a horse -- >> right, he said there was a huge tranquilizer, basically. >> if your concern is you're overwhelming the child's immune
6:38 pm
system, which he seems to be saying and other people said there is no merit to it. i want to show you a graph that is important. we used to give a lot more if you look back to 1 980, top left, that's what we used to give 3,000 antigin. at the bottom left is the rates of autism. when we used to give a lot of vaccine, that's when autism rates were at the lowest and as we've given less and less, autism rates have gone up. the graph speaks for itself. there is no correlation between vaccines and autism. one could make the argument vaccines protect against autism. my point is you can't read into this idea that there is any relationship whatsoever between vaccines and autism. >> i want you to listen to something else dr. ben carson said about vaccines and we'll talk about it. >> vaccines are important, certain ones, the ones that
6:39 pm
would prevent death or crib ling. there are a multitude of vaccines that probably don't fit in that category and there should be some discretion in those cases. >> what do you make of that? >> first of all, i know dr. carson, he went to the same medical school and very well-regarded pediatric neurosurgeon. i would be curious what vaccines he's talking about. people tend to forget roto virus, that maybe is not that big a deal. forgetting it could kill half a million kids around the world that don't have access to the v vaccination, mumps, measles, which vaccine do you not give your child? how do you make the argument some aren't that serious? just about any disease that we vaccinate against routinely can cause people to get really sick if not die. so i don't think you can start to make a list like that of things you wouldn't do. >> you had two doctors on that
6:40 pm
stage, dr. rand paul and dr. carson, is that politics? do you think is going on? >> yeah, i think so. you know, i think that dr. carson initially was pretty strong about saying look, there is no link between vaccines and autism but there is this, i think tendency, this incentive maybe to find a common middle ground. no, there is no correlation here. yeah, but look, it's a lot of vaccines. let's cut back on the number of vaccines and do it slowly and eliminate some. it's a little bit of political pandering and unfortunate. dr. rand paul said things about some of the concerns about vaccines at that time. dr. carson i think was more forceful in terms of the science last night but probably, you know, dangerous not to just be absolutely clear on this and not equivocate at all. in link between the two. you should not do anything that delays the schedule. you could leave your kids vulnerable and other children,
6:41 pm
as well. >> thanks very much. >> you got it, thank you. hillary clinton's top aids were watching the debate and called it a win for them. they say the opposition to planned parenthood is out of touch with many americans views, host americans views they say and will thuhurt them in the general election. today mrs. clinton campaigned and here is what she said at a boys and girls club. >> i think we have to once again recommit ourselves to doing all that we can to make sure starting with our kids every single child has the same chance to grow up to achieve his or her dreams. and that every family is given the help and support starting at the local level but backed up by our country so that you're not out there alone. >> last night clinton appeared on "the tonight show" and gave her campaign advice. >> hello.
6:42 pm
who is this? >> congratulations, you're speaking to donald trump. [ laughter ] >> oh, hello, donald. >> how are you hilary? i haven't seen you since my last wedding. >> well, i'm sure i'll see you at the next one. >> i'm curious, donald, what is your stance on women'si issues? >> you know, i know a lot of women and they all have issues. >> today she gave the first live interview with wolf blitzer and i talked to wolf earlier about it. >> wolf, what were sometime of moments from your interview with hillary clinton that stood out? >> well, anderson, i really wanted her to have an opportunity to respond to fierce criticism levelled against her at the presidential debate. you and i were sitting together and the republicans went after her point after point after point whether on planned parenthood or e-mail controversy. listen to a little bit of what
6:43 pm
she told me. let's talk about another source of criticism you received last night, this one from the new jersey governor chris christie. you said at the debate you can't tell the american people the truth. those were his words about your e-mail, the controversy, says you should be prosecuted for having a server in your baseball with national security secrets running through it. he says russians, chinese, 18-year-olds could have hacked into your server. you think that was possible that they hacked into your server? >> there is no evidence of that and again, this is over heated rhetoric baseless charges trying to somehow gain a footing in the debate and in the primary and it really doesn't deserve any comment. >> you've dismissed donald trump's campaign as entertainment suggested in part it's not really serious but the top republican candidate right now donald trump for that matter ben carson, carly fiorina, they are all political outsiders and your main democratic opponent
6:44 pm
bernie sanders is pulling ahead in new hampshire and iowa and running as an outsider. how do you deal with that? why is bernie sanders ahead of you in new hampshire and iowa right now? >> well, i have said for a long time polls are going to go up, down, i'm very confident and very comfortable about our strategy. i feel that our campaign in iowa, new hampshire, early states and moving onto the states that come after are really coming together well. i'm excited by the level and intensity of the support that i have. so i always thought thispetitiv. this is the most important job in the only in the country but the world and people have to fight hard, make their case and earn the votes of the american voters. >> you sat next to joe biden when you were the secretary of state for four years. he's been the vice president of the united states now for almost
